The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.


Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach   using   powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital filmmaking and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its    alignment to the Common Core National   Standards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.


Mott Hall has a technology rich environment. In an effort to confront the digital divide, we use the PupilPath online system to give       parents and students instant access to grades, attendance, and progress reports.
